Perkins Loan Center

The Perkins Loan Service Center is a sub-division of the Student Accounts Office. This area is responsible for the collection and servicing of Perkins Loans. Our servicer, EFG Technologies handles the billing of the loans.

Student Loan Deferments

You may defer (delay) payments on your loan by submitting forms completed and certified for any one of the following categories:

  • While enrolled and in attendance as at least a half-time student at an institution of higher education or comparable institution approved for this purpose by the Secretary.
  • While enrolled and in attendance as a regular student in a course of study that is part of a graduate fellowship program approved by the Secretary.
  • While engaged in graduate or post-graduate fellowship-supported study outside the United States.
  • While enrolled and in attendance in a course of study that is part of a rehabilitation-training program for disabled individuals.
Deferments are not granted in advance. Postponements and forbearances may be granted to loan recipients who file a request form.


Any financial aid refund (financial aid in excess of institutional charges), other than PLUS Loans, is disbursed to the student. PLUS loan proceeds are refunded to the parents unless prior arrangements with the financial aid office are made, in order for the student to receive the check.

Credit balances less than $10 will not be refunded.

Electronic Refunds


Log in and register to have your refund deposited directly into your account electronically.

Funds will be available approximately 7 calendar days from the first day of classes, provided the student is registered and attending classes.

Attendance is counted from the first day of required attendance in a term. Fractions of a week count as a full week. No refunds will be made following the fourth week. Exceptions to the policy may be reviewed by the Tuition and Fees Appeals Committee. Refunds of less than $10 will not be issued.

UNCSA will prorate institutional charges for Federal Title IV aid recipients based on the percentage of the term completed, calculated by dividing the number of calendar days the student attended in the term by the total number of calendar days in the term. Title IV financial aid recipients will be charged for a percentage of the term equal to the percentage of aid they “earned”. After completing more than 60 percent of the term as calculated above, the student will have “earned” 100 percent of his/her institutional charges, as well as his/her Title IV financial aid.

If a student withdraws or cancels registration before the first day of classes, no financial aid will be disbursed, and the student will be responsible for any charges he/she may owe.

Suspension or Unofficial Withdrawal

Students who are suspended for disciplinary reasons or who do not formally withdraw are not eligible for a refund of tuition or fees.
